APB and Crackdown dev collapses

HappyChimp

What a bloody shame, if only RTW ran with Crackdown 2 when they had the chance! (or worked on *anything* apart from a MMO)

Had a quick go with the APB beta, didn't really get on with it but probably wouldn't have picked it up regardless tbh - who has time to plough into a MMO who isn't in full time education/unemployed?

Hopefully something good can come of this (new studio?), and I'm quite looking forward to Crackdown 3 as well :)

£31 at The Hut with the 10% off code - blue10 (*today only* I think).

Might see what the demo is like, and kill the pre-order if it sucks (hope not, videos so far look ace)

"And what is exactly are you going to play on that DS when all the games companies go out of business. Thief"

So you're 100% squeaky clean and legal are you? (music/films/software/pr0n etc ... wow really!!?)

I'm going to support Factor 5 because I think this is a *great* game - does it really matter that I've played it a few weeks early (rather, 1 day before the original UK release date). It sounds like the majority of the people who have played this early are going to pick this up on day 1, as it obvious to see how much work has gone into making it.

//edit - added pr0n ;)

7/10 – is a bit harsh imo

Awesome little game - The missus and I have been playing this non-stop yesterday evening, and feel like we’ve hardly scratched the surface (we’ve both nearly finished world 3).

Yes the controls aren’t great, but if you can manage to get over that, you’ll have a right blast – good fun playing it together with your better half seeing who comes up with the best solution.

Some of the levels can be a bit on the cryptic side, but if you get stuck/frustrated just move on to something else, lots to do here. Obviously we’ve not got that far into it yet, but already worth the entry price… for what it’s worth.

Oh and I’ve placed a pre-order for it, so don’t I don’t feel *too* guilty playing it early :)

I’d urge anyone who’s tempted by the concept to at least give it a try before writing it off completely (pun intended ;).

8.5/10 from me (9.5/10 if the controls were better)

Ouch - I just ordered an 360 Arcade for my dad this morning (he wants to play Call of Juarez: BiB of all things) - was going to hang around until the end of the month for the alleged "price drop", rather glad I didn't piss about now :)

Got Overlord II fairly cheap a few weeks back (£18) but not had much of a chance to play it yet - got queued this up on Marketplace anyway, hopefully it stays free until hometime :)

Fallout 3: Operation Anchorage

HappyChimp

10 years ago

It was a theme she had
On a scheme he had
Told in a foreign land

To take life on earth
To the second birth
And the man was in command

It was a flight on the wings
Of a young girls dreams
That flew too far away

Don't push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might
Have set upon yourself

China in your hand

Come from greed
Never born of the seed
Took life from a barren land
Oh eyes wide
Like a child in the form of man
A prophecy for a fantasy
A castle in his mind

Don't push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might
Have set upon yourself

China in your hand
In your hand, your hand

Don't push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might
Have set upon yourself
You shouldn't push too hard, no no
Don't push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don't wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can't help them
You don't know what you might
Have set upon yourself

GOG.com opens to the public

Picked up Fallout 2 for ~£3.50 via the beta a while back - site & download process works really well.

Being able to use Paypal and having no DRM is a win - not having the time to actually play Fallout 2 isn't :)

Just snuck in a cheeky pre-order for this - £130 is still an complete outrage for one game, but fuck it!
